DESCRIPTION

Agave utahensis var nevadensis - The Nevada Agave


You are bidding for 5 seeds of this charming and beautiful Agave.

This the smallest and hardiest variety of this particular Agave species. It is very distinctive due to its unusual spine formation and the way the imprints of the surrounding leaves persist on the leaves throughout their life. It originates from Eastern California, Southern Nevada and Northwestern Arizona. Generally uncommon, it nevertheless forms large colonies when it is found.

A very slow growing species, the rosette will barely attain 40 cm across even when fully grown. The leaves has a sharp, elongated terminal spine and curiously hooked spines on the margins. It is a very hardy plant, perhaps the most hardy of the genus, withstanding deep snow in habitat as its range covers some quite high peaks where winter minimums get as low as minus 23 Deg C.

As a group the Agaves are known as Century Plants, due to the mistaken belief that they take 100 years before they flower. This species will flower after around 12 - 20 years, which is around the average for the smaller species. The flower stem grows to 3 metres in about 4 months or so, it is unbranched and has numerous lemon yellow flowers. The plant then puts all of its energy into this and subsequent seed production. Shortly after this the plant will die, but it may form offsets at this point, which can be grown on.

It is very easy to germinate and grow on. As this is hardy to USDA Zone 5 in habitat, this will prove to be hardy in parts of the UK, providing it can be kept dry during the coldest weather - instructions will be sent for outdoor growing.



Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:

I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

General Disclaimer

All seeds sold are fresh and are stored in conditions suitable to promote the viability of that particular type of  seed.  All plants are guaranteed to be free from disease when supplied. 

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.
